Source Code Indian Poster?

Screen Daily reported last month that Indian film distributor 52 Weeks Entertainment had snapped up the Indian rights to Duncan Jones’ Source Code, for an April release (Yay for India!)

And now a poster has surfaced over on Internet Movie Poster Awards, that may well be the Indian poster itself?

Source Code Indian Market Poster?

Nice addition to the ever increasing collection of posters either way, what do you think?

Well spotted @lpoolfilmnerd 😉

Duncan Jones to Direct Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Source Code’

Duncan Jones & Jake Gyllenhaal

Duncan Jones is to direct Jake Gyllenhall in forthcoming Sci-Fi thriller ‘Source Code’

Screen Daily reports from the American Film Market festival:

Philippe Rousselet’s Vendome Pictures has announced its first project, teaming with Mark Gordon on the sci-fi thriller Source Code starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Summit International has already pre-sold rights to more than 15 territories at AFM.

Duncan Jones, fresh from his critically acclaimed low budget sci-fi Moon, will direct the story of a US soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a train bombing until he can find the perpetrator. Ben Ripley wrote the screenplay with revisions from Billy Ray.

Responding to questions regarding the progress on ‘Mute’, Duncan Tweeted:

For those asking, Mute still in the plans, just slightly delayed. It’s a hard sell.. whereas Source Code came with an offer hard to refuse.

Its a good step up in budget and ambition. I’m excited to work with Jake G too. Cool guy. I like him.

Response so far from those that have read the script is very positive, with our good friend @crazysphinx saying:

Don’t know which draft, but I read the script sometime ago. It’s really good. Can’t wait to see @manmademoon ‘s take on it 🙂

And Alex Billington at FirstShowing.net chipped in with:

Just found out Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) is directing Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal – I’ve read the script, it’s frickin’ awesome!
